        Best New Balance Yet

        By Jim

        from Santa Cruz



            Best Uses

              The new 1260 V4 has nearly the same roominess as my 1260 V2, all of the lateral support and stability of my 1260 V3 and improved front end performance superior to both previous 1260 Vs. I think it the best Stability+ running shoe I've ever owned. Liked it from the very start and just order another pair in a different color combination.

              Very Nice Shoe

              • Nice Update To V3


              • tongue too short

              Best Uses

                This is a very nice upgrade to the V3. The shoe fits my foot very nicely. I have a foot that is more on the narrow side, if you have a foot that is a little wider I would recommend going to a wider size than the standard D. The cushioning and stability are top notch and the shoe has a very nice look to it.

                My only complaint about the V4 is that the tongue is too short and migrates downward due to to the way it is constructed. The V3 had a much better tongue and did not have this problem.

                Overall, I really like the 1260 V4 and would recommend it to others who are in the "stabilty plus" category.

                Best Uses

                • Long Miles

                First time trying any NB for my running. took out of the box and did one of the most comfortable runs of my life. I was running on the wave prophecy 3 and these shoes blow them out of the water. They are far from any barefoot style of running shoe, give great support, and I can not believe how comfortable they are for long miles. Will buy again.

                Good for 4E!!!!

                By FredfromNY

                from NY



                    Best Uses

                      Wider and more comfortable than the v3, the shoes were great out of the box. Forward sole lacks the flexibility of the v3, which may be of concern. Also seems to be made from a simpler more inexpensive process and seems to lack the craftsmanship of the v3.
                      That being said i bought 3 more pair of the soon to be discontinued v3's.
